The author is the heart and soul of a blog. It is the author who creates a beautiful blog that shares knowledge and other wonderful things with other people. Its natural that people are curious to know more about the person behind the blog who writes the posts. At times the blog visitors want to talk with the author and discuss about the things that he blogs. At such times, the "About The Author" widget is very useful for both the Author and also the readers.In this post I will explain how to add About the author widget to a Blogger/Blogspot blog.I will try to keep it as simple as possible so that it becomes easy for everyone to add it to their blog.
